They'll just trade the non-lethal aid crap for lethal military crap. We Americans are such do-gooder buffoons. The whole world laughs at us since Obama and his band of Keystone Kops.

Ukraine needs to work this out for themselves.

Prior to 1991, they were part of the Soviet Union and then they decided to leave the Soviets and become independent.

That would be like if Texas left the Union and then after having their President overthrown in a 'coup, decided to come back to the U.S.A.

This is a matter for Russia and it's former State of Ukraine to figure out for themselves.

If it wasn't a problem when Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union, why is it such a big deal today?

Poor analogy

Better:

That would be like if Texas left the Union, took New Orleans when it left and it took the USA 20 years to notice because our President at the time was a drunk!

You are absurdly ignorant if you think that is even remotely a justification for what Russia is doing in Ukraine.

By your logic Italy has the right to invade and occupy all former land that was once the Roman empire, that Greece also has a claim on all previous lands, Byzantine empire should also regain it's lost lands, the ottomans, Mongols should take all of their former lands which include Russia, That Spain has the right to invade it's former empire around the world, Britain's empire, France, Germany, etc etc etc.

And not only do you believe that it's OK, but you believe that the people's of those formerly held nations should just roll over and accept invasion.

Such ignorance.

Happy meals and Band-aids.... THATS Oblamer's idea of helping a potential ally resist an aggressor? We wouldn't be facing this if the callow POS hadn't failed to honor the previous Administrations agreement to place an Anti-Ballistic Missile shield in Eastern Europe. THAT was the tone Putin picked up on when Oblamer dropped the plan in favor of his "reset"(HA HA HA )with Russia. Oblamer is/has been/and will continue to be a MISERABLE epic FAIL for American interests.

Don't look at the superficial data/news blurbs we are being fed. You need to look at this with a GLOBAL strategic eye. There is much more to this than Putin wanting the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. He ALREADY had safe Naval/Militaru Bases in the Crimea per the agreement when the USSR broke up.

Why would we install the ABM system that didn't work and spend hundreds of billions of dollars installing said system that doesn't work?

Obama is doing far better than you think and what is it about the midterm elections that you feel is going to change the foreign policy of America? you think that putin is going to be more fearful of a republican congress? silly notion.

typical rhetoric from a brain dead liberal.

WHY should the usa spend THEIR money to put up a defense shield for YOU? if you want an anti-ballistic missile shield, go spend your own money and build it.

"potential ally?" have you ever heard the saying.. "with friends like you, we don't need enemies."?

people like you want the usa to send in their troops to die for YOU. and when the usa asks for help when they need it, people like you send in a few hundred troops to back us up.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_War_in_Afgh...

yeah. like we really need "potential ally" like you. NOT.

it's obvious to me that you will hate us later anyway no matter what we do. even if we spend our hard earned money to build you your defense shield, you will end up hating us anyway.

we are just an atm to you.
